Course Description:

Baby Boomers, most often defined as individuals born between 1946 and 1964, have a powerful impact on society as many of the cultural touchstones of their youth still resonate today. Music, film, food, books, and sports figures from the '50s and '60s are very much alive. Join us as we discuss these cherished elements that have spanned generations and remain as vital as ever in 2020.

Chris Hasegawa grew up listening to the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Temptations. He remembers watching Apollo 11 land on the moon and hiding behind the sofa when the flying monkeys attacked Dorothy. Most of his cultural interests were formed in the '60s and '70s and, as proof, just check out the songs he plays in his car.

Larry Sill was raised in the Midwest, moved to California in 1981, and experienced major culture shock as a result. Having seen the Beatles in Chicago in 1965, he's been hooked on bands (and movies, books and sports teams) of the '60s ever since.
